  • Fantastic episode.

    Fantastic episode. Must note the clever beginning with the Superbowl tie-in. I am so glad that I don't have to wait an entire week for the continuation of this episode. Well written, paced nicely, van der Beek is great guest. Always nice to see the 'human' side of the regular cast, outside of the BAU duties and personalities. Enough give and take between the story line and getting personally involved with the characters to make you care. The child who plays young Tobias is gripping and very sympathetic and it carries over nicely to the adult character. What a great way to grab an audience right after 'The Big Game.' Well done!
